Designing Data Tools for Health Equity and Community Action

Data Tools for Health Equity Action11:00am – 12:00pm Pacific Time

Over the past decade alone, web technology has vastly increased data availability, and community innovators have created new tools for accessing, visualizing, analyzing, and sharing relevant data to advance equity-focused policies and investments. From local tools like the Metro Atlanta Equity Atlas, which connects local leaders to timely data across eight key areas of community well-being, to national tools like Mapping Police Violence, which provides interactive maps and charts on officer-involved deaths of community members, online data tools are equipping advocates, policymakers, funders, and the public with relevant data to advance health equity and move policy across a range of issue areas.

Equity in the food system: how what we are building and what we are fighting are inseparable in resistance

grapesAs the Northeast coordinates to build a regional food system, a central focus is on racial equity. In communities all across the region, groups are working on food justice. In this webinar, we will hear from 2 organizers: Isa Mujahid (CTCORE-Organize Now!, Bridgeport CT) and Heather Foran (community organizer, Portland ME). Through their grassroots efforts in their communities, Heather and Isa both are actively transforming the New England food system and raising and reflecting on struggles, challenges and questions to guide future work. This webinar creates space to share some of the questions and reflections.

Join the New England Grassroots Environment Fund to hear more about their efforts to engage community, their questions and challenges and practical perspectives to support the emergence and continued viability of a New England food system that is a resilient driver of healthy food for all, racial equity, sustainable farming and fishing and thriving communities. As we pull in examples from groups like Cooperation Jackson, this webinar focuses on some of the questions and opportunities local organizers are grappling with, invites participants to share in the conversation and ideally has us all bring back questions to our own efforts about how our collective work integrates concepts of social justice and racial equity.
